Re: PCM plays fine but DSD files [dff & dsf] do not...

At that time, the mpd clients appear to be unresponsive [mpad, auremo, client175]. Here is the latest log: Aug 11 20:3...

PCM plays fine but DSD files [dff & dsf] do not...

Hi, Sorry for my first post to be a request for help. When trying to play DSD encode files [both dsf and dff] the only thing I hear is a high pitched squeal and some times a burst of noise. The output of PCM is fine [via FLAC files]. The DAC is the iFi Nano-iDSD which works well with other DSD capab...
